Our aim is to assist people in developing the essential skills required to achieve excellence in leadership and management.

We support employee’s career potential, enabling them to enrich their working life and that of the teams they lead and manage.

Here at UCQ, we are thrilled to be able to dovetail experienced apprenticeship delivery and provision through a range of management qualifications. We are proud to be the first private university provider able to offer the prestigious Level 6 Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship.

BA (Hons) Professional Management

We have created the BA (Hons) Professional Management qualification that fully encompasses all of the vital elements of the chartered manager degree apprenticeship standard. We have worked closely with employers and the sector professional body in order to create the degree and, by doing this, we have integrated both academic and work-based learning; underpinned by activities identified as good practice.

All of the modules have been developed and delivered by University Centre Quayside. They have been validated through a process of external peer review from The Open University as being of an appropriate standard and quality which means employees can work towards the distinguished Open University validated award of BA (Hons) Professional Management. Our bachelors degree has complete parity of esteem with the awards offered throughout UK higher education.

Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship

Our degree programme is delivered by leading practitioners who combine their practical business expertise with experienced programme delivery ensuring students receive the very best possible tuition. UCQ specialises in supporting existing and aspiring managers, as well as those that favour a vocational rather than a traditional academic university education.

With UCQ, you can achieve Chartered Management Institute qualifications. CMI qualifications provide a progressive framework, each qualification leading on to the next, up to the highest accolade in the management profession, which is the achievement of Chartered Manager status.
